    I got a kick out of the last article that described sleeping in the pits, either in tents or station wagons, cooking on charcoal grills, and that, as Mrs. Collins was quoted as saying, "The pit was no place to wear good clothes." I recall crawling from the back of a station wagon one morning to count over twenty mosquito bites on my legs before getting into wet jeans. So, while it was a good idea, for the sport's sake, to "look more professional," it was sometimes difficult. Our boats certainly looked more professional and always better than we did; although, we did take heed, cleaned up a bit and invested in windbreakers with patches.

    I appreciate reading these old newspaper articles and running across the names of people like Tommy Goslee and Bill Henderson from Arkansas, who were founding members of the Razorback Boat Racing Club that was established several years later. Bill Henderson was said to have had a scare when he flew a D-hydro as high as a telephone pole. I doubt he went that high, but having been off the water myself, I can imagine it felt like it.
